    Default Heat care

    I did not know whether to put this here or in the cooking section?

    I just looked at my outside thermometer and it says 104. Heat index is higher than that. UV index is 10 of 10.

    Be careful out there.

    Stay hydrated and use the sun screen.

    I come in about 1:00 and call it a day. The afternoon is off limits if it means being outside.

    We hit 86 degrees with a 80% humidity today. Saturday is the only day we are supposed to get out of the 80's this week.

    Afternoon sky was black as sin. But, we only got a little rain. But, not much.

    Oh hail no!! I'm too old, too fat and smoke way too much. My hats off to them but if no brush hog then I'd be turning some goats out.

    I have a trick for when it's really hot. Instead of it being hot, or the heat beating down on me...I think to myself "I am the fire."

    The realist adjusts the sails.

    Yeah, I have a trick too. It's called turning down the thermostat.

    Yep, good luck with that!

    Build a man a fire and he is warm for one night, set a man on fire and he is warm for the rest of his life.

    73?! Man, My thermo is set on 68. My theory is if you can hang beef in the house then you are almost cool enough. Almost.

    Last night I was out working in the shop and shut things down to go inside. I walked into a wall of heat when I opened the door. The shop has AC.

    It was 11:00 pm and when I brought up the weather channel to check the temps I discovered that it was still 84 degrees and 92% humidity at that time if night!

    You can get heatstroke at midnight around here!
